A date has been set for the trial of Seán Quinn’s family over liability for €2.3bn worth of loans from the former Anglo Irish Bank.
The trial of Patricia Quinn and her five children had been parked until the criminal trial of three former senior Anglo executives had concluded. The Commercial Court was told this week thatthe date had been agreed for the trial to begin in April 2015.
Mr Peter Kelly asked to hear the view of the DPP who had originally asked for a stay on the trial going ahead. Paul Anthony McDermott, acting for the DPP, said the Director had no objection to the case proceeding and did not believe it would impact on any outstanding cases in the criminal proceedings.
The case could begin on 13 April next year and it could run for 4-8 months.
